I moved to Florida in 1998 where I began playing organized roller hockey. Had some great years playing roller hockey, which doesn’t compare to ice, but it was all we had. Even played outdoors 98 degrees with full hockey equipment, crazy. All of us would go to watch the Florida Panthers in Ft. Lauderdale and we had even more great times, I eventually got season tickets. I saw my first-ever playoff series, the Panthers lost to the Devils in a game seven shootout, the Florida crowd never sat down the entire game. Great memories!
While in Florida I went to night school and got my degree as a webmaster. I’ve been a web developer now for over 23 years and this brings me to why I started itsplayoffhockey.com.
The domain name came to my buddy and me while of course watching playoff hockey. They would ask the players during interviews, why are you guys more intense, hitting harder, playing quicker, their answer was always, “It’s Playoff Hockey”. We said what a great domain name, that was 10 years ago.
I wanted to get my hockey news on one website, not have to go to so many different sites. I don’t have time to write all this content either, so I pull content from all the major hockey news outlets into one site, itplayoffhockey.com.
I built the site, I do all the graphics, I manage all the digital marketing, along with that I manage all the applications that produce the site and its content. I also must pay for the live scores and schedules the site pulls in.</.p>
The only real way I can afford to do all this is to display advertising on my site. The only way I get paid is if my users click on the ads. About .01 cents per click. I get paid even more if you click on an ad and buy something! It’s a tough side hustle but I’m doing this because I know how, and I love doing it.
So, if you enjoy the site, click on some ads to help me out, otherwise just enjoy yourself and read the articles, save itsplayoffhockey.com to your favorites or share some posts on your social apps and with friends. We are a rare breed, and we love it because we get it, hockey is one of the greatest sports. Its Playoff Hockey, it’s on another level!!
